New Zealand runner struck by pickup truck hopes to finish trek across America

I was reading about this NZer who was running across the US for charity (pulmonary fibrosis) when a truck deliberately hit him and left him for dead. He has spent the last 5 weeks in Ohio and although has health insurance, it is unclear whether the insurance will pay for the large cost for his medical care.

He has a give a little page where people can donate and I’ve put a few links below to TV interviews and his originally run across the US website.

(Also if others have networks to forward that would be greatly appreciated)
